Understanding Students You Are Working With

This week's Leadership Training - Every human was created by God to have these longings…
1. The longing to be nurtured. To be cherished. To be wanted. To be loved. A desire for someone to care enough about us to come alongside us.
2. The longing to be in the game. To have purpose. To feel like they’re important and they matter.
3. The longing to belong to something bigger than ourselves.
